Hello everyone! We’re diving head first into another amazing Newton’s Nook release today! It’s day one and we’ve got another adorable roundabout to add to your collection, along with some fabulous stencils! Let’s have a look!
Basketweave and Bunny Tails Stencils
I absolutely fell in love with everything, as usual so I’ve got 2 fun cards to share with you today. Let’s look at the awesome Spring Roundabout first. Remember these pair perfectly with the Banner Trio dies and Circle Frames dies.
For this fun card, I started by stamping and coloring the spring roundabout with my copic markers. Then I stamped and colored the Spring Pile Up characters with the same colors. I used the circle frames dies and spring pile up dies to cut everything out.
I loved one of the sentiments in the spring pile up set and saw that part of it was in the spring roundabout set so I did some partial stamping and created it in a new way. I die cut one of the banner trio dies and stamped the first part, then die cut a pink banner from the slimline frames & windows set and stamped the rest of it. I glued them together so it was easy for placement later. I die cut the scalloped rectangle from frames & flags and used the basketweave stencil on the background.
Moving on to assembly, I added foam tape to the stenciled panel and added it to a white card base. The spring roundabout circle was too much with the critters so I added another circle frame from vellum over the top, hiding the glue behind the spring pile up characters when I added them with foam squares. I also added foam to the back of the sentiment banners and popped them in place.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to noses, beaks, toe beans and hooves! It’s barely past Valentine’s Day and I’m so excited for Easter with all of this cuteness to play with! Now, on to that cute bunny tails stencil!
For this card, I took a white panel and stenciled a light gray over the bunnies. Then I placed the tail part of the stencil and did a rainbow effect diagonally across the whole thing. This panel measures 3.75×5.5 inches. I chose a cute bunny from Hop Into Spring and colored it with my copics in the same fun rainbow colors. I cut it out with the coordinating dies and set it aside. Next, I die cut a vellum scalloped circle from circle frames to create a focal point. For the sentiment I die cut a banner from Banner Trio, stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Spring Roundabout and glued my bunny to the top of it. Adding foam squares to the bunny and banner, I adhered it to the vellum circle and hid liquid glue behind the image attaching the whole thing to the stenciled panel.
I stamped a diagonal strip on a gray panel and adhered it to a white card base. Then, with foam tape I added the stenciled panel on top. Finally I added the vellum circle, bunny and banner to that. For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the bunny’s nose and toe beans.
